1 folder (0.1 linear feet)

The Diaries of the Kayser Family were written between 1936 and 1946 by members of the Palouse, Washington family. While it's not immediately clear which diary belonged to who, at least two (1936) diaries belonged to the daughters, Esther and Meriam. The ten diaries are dated 1936, 1936, 1938, 1939, 1940 and 1941, 1942, 1943, 1944, 1945, and 1946. Although there are some gaps in entries, most are complete and filled with details about the daily life of this family. While the family lived in a rural region, one daughter, Meriam, worked as a telephone operator. Most of the entries concern daily life and activities, but others comment on world and community affairs.
